FITE TV has announced a new partnership with WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett.
On Thursday, May 24, 2018, it was officially revealed through a press release that FITE and Jarrett’s Global Force Entertainment (GFE) have come to an agreement that will see GFE develop sports and entertainment programming for the combat sports platform, which is a digital network for live streaming of combat sports on a global basis.
It was noted in the press release that was sent out to members of the media that GFE will also be developing and acquiring wrestling events for the platform.
The final note of this release was the fact that Jarrett’s company is working with Flipps Media Inc (FITE’s parent company) to develop non-combat sports programming for a to-be-determined digital platform.
“FITE has a long standing relationship with Jeff Jarrett dating back to the first ever live PPV event on the digital platform, NJPW WrestleKingdom 9,” said Michael Weber, FITE COO. “Currently we are working with Jeff on some very exciting programming for FITE that we will be announcing over the summer that help us to continue to be the number one digital platform for combat sports.”
“Currently FITE airs programming originating from over 30 different countries in the world for over 300 different live event promotions,” said Global Force Entertainment CEO, Jeff Jarrett. “FITE TV is the future of how fans will be watching their favorite combat sports programming. This is the right place for GFE programming.”
